The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine is dedicated to providing exceptional perioperative care to our pediatric and adult surgical patients throughout the care continuum in our new Perioperative Surgical Home, the operating rooms and growing number of satellite locations, Augusta University Medical Center’s intensive care units, and our Pain Clinic. Over 90% of our faculty are subspecialty-trained and bring with them a wealth of clinical experience as well as advanced perioperative diagnostics and treatment interventions.
We are committed to training future physicians through our anesthesiology residency, pain medicine fellowship, and anesthesiology critical care medicine fellowship programs. We are proud of our residents who, over the years, have served as leaders of regional and national associations, developed devices used in the operating room, and provided excellent care for our patients. We also offer an anesthesia externship and various rotations for medical students interested in our specialty. Our basic science labs conduct research funded by both the National Institutes of Health and private industry.
